This week saw 10 Queensbury RC runners participate at 2 courses.
This week also saw Bradford parkrun host the annual tribute run in memory of Arthur James. Arthur was well known for his dedication to raising funds for charitable causes and this altruism is continuing in his honour. An impressive 414 runners turned up and a total of £295.04 was raised for Alzheimer’s Research UK. The full story can be read here.
Well done to all that took part. If you ran the Parkrun but aren’t included in these results, please ensure your Running Club is set to Queensbury RC on your Parkrun athlete profile.
Queensbury runners were off to a blistering start at the first of three 5k races in the John Carr series hosted by Saltaire Striders. We were well represented and PBs were being achieved left, right and centre in the fast-paced course around the Yorkshire Water estate in Esholt, which boasts just 79 feet of climbing.
Runners were encouraged by a stiff tailwind off the start line, but were victim to its full force in the final kilometer or two to the finish. Conditions next week may see participants shed the odd second to hopefully achieve a fresh round of personal bests.
The next race will take place on Wednesday 13th May on the same course. A very well done to all and if anyone has been missed off the results list, please accept my apologies and email your result through to firstname.lastname@example.org.
